Hey Ho

I thought I would try it
It felt a bit naughty though because
I have not been able to do it for such a long, long time

But being alone in the cottage has just given me the opportunity
to give it a go

It proved to be a little bit of a  tussle

But after a couple of years
of elasticated waists

I have just managed to get into a 34 inch pair of pants!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. You know Earl, I sometimes try (usually unsuccessfully) to rib you but your weight loss regime is genuinely inspirational. I still have 34 inch jeans in my wardrobe that I haven't been able to get into for twenty five years! Ever seen Bibendum - The Michelin Man?

  11. Good job; easier to do up the button if you were to lay on the bed and suck the tummy in ... lol. Experience here at fact.

  13. Go into any shop in England - or even Wales for that matter - and ask for a pair of 34 inch pants and they will give you something to wear under your TROUSERS!!!

  30. Congratulations! No muffin top? WOW! We really need to see a picture of this!

    Just kidding, I think it's great! I myself gained 2# whilst my hubby was home for a week and a half! My muffin top now has become a double muffin top to match my double chin.

  31. Congrats John! That is fantastic. Whatever you're doing is paying off. Sadly I can't say the same, my muffin top is alive and well and asking for its breakfast.

    LOL at some of the comments - you have some very funny followers!

    Have you held your breath all this time John?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'll muffin top you chris if I get another crack like that!

  38. Excellent. And is the blood still circulating in your legs? Can you still feel your feet?

    I'm about 35" now, but I once had a pair of 32" jeans which even then were obscenely tight. Whenever I wore them, gay men paid me a great deal of attention....

  40. WTG, John!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And NO muffin top???

    Extraordinary!

    I've lain on the bed before to try on smaller sized jeans. Sounds as if this wasn't necessary in your case.
